Some Related Landscaping Costs Added to MCI Increase for Garage Roof
LVT Number: #31000
Landlord applied for MCI rent hikes based on the installation of a garage roof and related costs. The DRA ruled for landlord in part but disallowed some of the claimed related costs. Landlord appealed and won, in part. To qualify, related costs must be incurred in connection with and directly related to the MCI. The DRA properly excluded the costs claimed for new sidewalks since landlord didn't show that they were within the property line. Costs claimed for a skid steer bucket and water tap weren't related to the subject building.
